Son Cubano was packed like 2019 and no vaccine check so it was a little intimidating. That said service and food were great but if you are not ready for crowded dining indoors, this is not the place for you.

Simply amazing. The menu, the food, the service (thanks, Marcus D.) , the location, the ambience, and the view. It's all top notch. Don't miss the Clothesline Bacon, Skirt Steak Skewers and the (OH MY!) Ropa Nueva. Too good to leave anything on the plate. Pricey but worth it.

Me third time here. Food is really good! Quick service, but waiters tend to forget you after all food is delivered. I also find it strange that food comes before drinks.

Overall excellent experience. Good quality is superb, although I wish I’ve gotten a big larger portion on my dish of choice which was the Salmon. Overall, worth the visit and experience. Recommended.

Son Cubano is a very nice restaurant located at the waterfront in Weehawken with a magnificent view of the Manhattan skyline. The ambience of the restaurant is beautiful. Food is good but not particular special. Service was attentive but plates were simply dropped at the table. A tip of 18% is mandatorily added to the bill and on top of it a surcharge for paying with a credit card. I do understand the pain of credit card fees for businesses but given the fact that Son Cubano is having the flair of an upscale restaurant the credit card surcharge just feels cheap. In summary a great ambience &view but otherwise a rather mediocre experience. Hence, only 3 stars.

Had reservations they attended us immediately and they were going to sit us outside but I asked if we could sit inside and they accommodated us. Food was on point very tasty great portions. Drinks were the best part. Good atmosphere and great service. They even gave us champagne for my girlfriends and I anniversary.

The restaurant was pricier than I expected, but the next day I realized we were charged for items that weren’t served. For example, I ordered a double-espresso. I was served a single but billed for a double. There were also alcohol items on the bill beyond what we received.

I LOVED this place. Considering it as a wedding venue after last night. The service was amazing & the food was delicious! The view overlooking the water & all the lighting made the night memorable.
I would recommend this place for a intimate engagement, birthday party or wedding!

I went here with my husband on a whim Bc we were looking for great dinning, we are From NY and let me just say it was amazingggg I loved everything I had the salmon with rice he had the skirt steak and we both rated our food a 10, dessert was also amazing we dined outside the water and nyc across it was such a nice view & vibe one thing I love was the constant checking from staff to make sure everything was okay that’s a plus you aren’t left waiting for anything water was refilled constantly and again staff was so nice ! if you’d like to impress a date this is the way, only thing I would suggest is make a reservation. Now when we walked inside to use the bathroom it was beautiful I am planning my pre wedding dinner or my bday there Bc it is beautiful chandeliers and just so aesthetic !

The place has a beautiful view, good food , and excellent service,the only problem is that tables are too small that you are not able to put a purse on top or more than two plates…besides that is a perfect place.
